Saudi Arabia Medical Disposables Market Growth & Trends
The Saudi Arabia medical disposables market size is expected to reach USD 7.9 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 17.0% from 2021 to 2028. COVID-19 pandemic, an increasing number of surgeries, growing awareness about hospital-acquired infections, and a surge in the elderly population across Saudi Arabia are the major driving factors for the market. In addition, rising healthcare expenditure, various government initiatives are also some of the key factors contributing to market growth.
An increasing number of surgeries in Saudi Arabia is projected to boost the market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the Ministry of Health Saudi Arabia, more than 30,000 bariatric gastric sleeve surgical operations were conducted in 2020. Since, hospital gowns, single-use eyewear, hand sanitizers, respiratory supplies, and sterilizing supplies, are the essential requirements for surgical operations, therefore, high demand for medical products that can be used one-time is expected throughout the forecast period.
The growing prevalence of HAIs owing to lack of hygiene and precaution is also one of the leading factors contributing to market growth. For instance, as per the report published by NCBI, in 2019, a survey was conducted on May 11, 2017, amongst inpatients at 6 hospitals in Saudi Arabia, the prevalence rate was 6.8% (114 of 1,666). The most common type of infections was pneumonia (27.2%), urinary tract infections (20.2%), and bloodstream infections (10.5%).
It also reported that around 19.2% of healthcare-associated infections were associated with devices. Non-woven disposables, such as hospital gowns, offer general contamination prevention and can help to reduce the risk of developing HAIs. It also prevents bacterial and other microbial illnesses from entering the patient's body. As a result, surgeons advise patients to wear throwaway gowns, gloves, and masks before medical operations. These factors are also expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
